The Good & the Bad - what did you like best? What least?
I really liked the location of the school, the main building (incl. canteen) and all IT teaching equipment (this really made learning easier). Staff were generally friendly and helpful. Afternoon activities were good but could have been more varied (they were mostly museums). My classes were in the basement of the hotel and the room was very small for 8 students and teacher, it was also dark and sometimes laud with noise coming from the side street. One of the teachers was very unprofessional and looked untidy and was smelling very strongly of cigarettes (this was very distracting). Luckily we only had 1 class with him. The teacher for 2nd and 3rd block was better although sometimes it seemed that speed of teaching could have been much faster (instead of small talk).
Your recommendations for other students
If you are not happy with the assigned teacher then speak with admin and change group. Take part in additional activities to boost learning experience and meet new people.
